Your memories of August Shipwreck will be a source of wisdom, but also pain. In honor of the film, we're taking on Lois Lowry's The Giver. |
Good theatre for bad literature? Marital aid for book nerds? A literary erotic fanfiction competition for the ages?
Shipwreck is all of these things.
Six Great Writers will destroy one Great Book, one Great Character at a time, in service of the transcendent and the profane (and also laughs). Marvel as beloved characters are plucked from their worlds and made to do stuff they were never meant to do in places they were never meant to see.
You choose the best Ship. The winning writer chooses their character for the next Shipwreck, and returns to defend their title.
All stories will be recited by Shakespearean Thespian in Residence, Sir Steven Westdahl, from his private chamber at Booksmith Castle, both to preserve the majesty of the written work and to ensure the honesty of the audience when voting for a winner.
This month's talent: July's winner Gabriel Cubbage, plus Na'amen Tilahun, Deborah Kenmore, Tara Marsden, June winner Maggie Tokuda-Hall, and MARA WILSON
